It does make some interesting points, though. The one I found particularly
noteworthy was that gopher in some respects was easier to deal with for
simply serving multimedia.

More to the point, if WWW had died out, WWW-like features probably *would*
have started to emerge within gopher menus. It *is* a logical extension to,
say, only make part of a menu item active. Eventually some sort of markup
language would have evolved, even if it wouldn't have looked much like SGML.

Thanks for the link.
